Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Enzyme

Her primary areas of investigation include Extracellular matrix, Cell biology, Immunology, Integrin and Tumor progression. Her research in Extracellular matrix intersects with topics in Cell, Cancer cell, Mammary gland, Mechanotransduction and Metastasis. Her Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Tissue homeostasis and Morphogenesis.

Her studies deal with areas such as Cancer, Stromal cell, Neuroscience and Neoplastic Processes as well as Immunology. Her work carried out in the field of Integrin brings together such families of science as Adherens junction, Mammary Epithelium, Glycocalyx and Cytoskeleton. Her Tumor progression research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Tumor microenvironment and Pathology.

Her most cited work include:

  • Tensional homeostasis and the malignant phenotype. (2830 citations)
  • Matrix Crosslinking Forces Tumor Progression by Enhancing Integrin Signaling (2476 citations)
  • The extracellular matrix: A dynamic niche in cancer progression (1816 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Valerie M. Weaver mainly focuses on Cell biology, Extracellular matrix, Cancer research, Pathology and Integrin. Particularly relevant to Signal transduction is her body of work in Cell biology. Her Extracellular matrix study incorporates themes from Stromal cell, Tumor microenvironment, Immunology, Matrix and Tumor progression.

The various areas that Valerie M. Weaver examines in her Cancer research study include Cancer cell, Cancer, Breast cancer, Metastasis and Stroma. Her work deals with themes such as Phenotype, Glycocalyx and Focal adhesion, which intersect with Integrin. Her Tissue homeostasis research incorporates themes from Malignant transformation, Mechanotransduction and Homeostasis.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (49.22%)
  • Extracellular matrix (46.12%)
  • Cancer research (30.23%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Cell biology (49.22%)
  • Extracellular matrix (46.12%)
  • Cancer research (30.23%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Valerie M. Weaver mainly investigates Cell biology, Extracellular matrix, Cancer research, Cancer and Stroma. She is studying Stem cell, which is a component of Cell biology. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Phenotype, Cancer cell, Mitochondrion, Programmed cell death and Mechanobiology.

Her Cancer research research includes themes of Duct, Pancreatic duct, Metastasis, Bile duct and Cell type. Her work is dedicated to discovering how Cancer, Signal transduction are connected with Tumor microenvironment and other disciplines. Her research investigates the connection with Stroma and areas like Stromal cell which intersect with concerns in Matrix, Malignant transformation, Malignancy, Protein kinase B and Oncogene.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • A framework for advancing our understanding of cancer-associated fibroblasts (332 citations)
  • Controlled modelling of human epiblast and amnion development using stem cells. (107 citations)
  • The Extracellular Matrix Modulates the Metastatic Journey. (84 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Enzyme

Valerie M. Weaver focuses on Cell biology, Extracellular matrix, Cancer research, Cancer and Cancer cell. Her Cell biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Epiblast, Embryonic stem cell and Regulator. Her Extracellular matrix study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Angiogenesis, Disease and Mechanobiology.

Her work on Stromal cell as part of general Cancer research study is frequently connected to Ubiquitin ligase, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. Her Cancer research is mostly focused on the topic Metastasis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Tumor progression, Mediator, Signal transduction and Cell membrane in addition to Cancer cell.
